Exiges are super ugly to me, and while I sort of like the Evora it sits on the threshold of being overstated. It's also a >3000lb car, and I already find the 86 too heavy to my tastes (my previous car despite being an older SUV wasn't that much heavier, by only by ~200lbs) so I crave lighter weight, even more agile vehicles.

Plus I love how A110s look, the new ones share a remarkably similar profile to the 86 and are as light as a Miata while having a fair bit more power, all for half the price of an exige/evora.

My Exige is under 2000 lbs.

I'd be more down for a semi-exotic I could drive every day (and I plan on doing this for my next daily.)

I really like the looks of the 718 Spyder:


But if my budget were to allow it, I'd totally daily a new Vantage or Portofino:



In the meantime, my Datsun Z often gets better reactions around LA than most exotics (and for some reason, so many people think it's a Porsche.)

This may not be new and exotic, but I'd love to have a red one:

Love the F355. Was right in my formative car years. Low, wide, sounds great.

Absolutely. Now of course "could" would mean "able to buy one without affecting my financial future", so I'd need to be absolutely loaded to be able to justify spending that much on a car... I'm a pocket protector dork who's too risk averse to lay out for expensive things.

997 GT3RS 4.0 counts as an exotic right? I love a good Lambo as much as the next guy, but nice Porsches are the only modern cars that I would describe as "so beautiful it hurts". You feel it in your chest.

agree with @yurikaze though, the 718 Spyder is gorgeous and dreamworthy. Then again, so is that Datsun
